Fools Never Do

 A   L   O   H   A !

Although our intellect 

always longs for 

clarity and certainty, 

our nature often 

finds uncertainty 


      Carl von Clausewitz

If ignorance is bliss, 

why aren't more 

people happy?

    English Proverb

Mural in a N. California Bar.
See the California Golden Bear?
Let's hold a good  thought for all
facing the big fires in that state.

Waikiki's Tiki Bars Are Empty

"Whoever drinks beer, 

he is quick to sleep; 

whoever sleeps long, 

does not sin; 

whoever does not sin, 

enters Heaven! Thus, 

let us drink beer!”

     Martin Luther

When a stranger 

is being a jerk,

You are 

for that moment 

their teacher. 

Don't take it personal. 

Laugh about it in 

the faculty lounge later.

A wise one changes 

their mind, a 

fool never will.

Spanish Proverb

Martin Luther sure changed his mind... going from monk wearing a hair shirt and doing penance on cold stone floors to a beer-guzzling family man!! Pixie isn't sure if that's wisdom or not; she is trying to decide if she will change her mind about clawing your good furniture.

I hope with all my heart that the wildfires can be controlled. Quickly.

Mike said...

I think it's fascinating that uncertainty is certain.

I love that first pic, Cloudia!

Sandee said...

Oh the fires here is awful. Hard to breathe and we've been staying inside for the most part. That only helps a bit, but still.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. ♥

So glad you stopped by to share at

Linda said...

That's a colorful mural! I'm so glad my daughter is staying in New Jersey until things cool down in California. She can do this because she is working remotely.

Mae Travels said...

I'm with you in worrying and sympathizing with the Californians who are displaced from their homes with nowhere to go and be safe from the pandemic. What a nightmare!

Nice quotes!

be safe... mae at

Absolutely gorgeous photos this week, Cloudia. Loved the bear and that moon, too. I agree that I'm worried about those in the path of the fires, so I'm glad you pointed that out. Thanks so much for sharing these great shots and quotes with us for T this Tuesday. Pixie is in rare form this week, too.
